In celebration of emerging creative talent across Western Australia, the awards are open to young artists and designers who engage in a variety of disciplines, including Architecture, Ceramics, Drawing, Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture and Video.

 The theme for this year’s award is ‘A Changing World’ and will be divided into six categories:
1) Art & Environment
2) Art & Science/Engineering
3) Art & Storytelling
4) Design & Environment
5) Design & Science/Engineering
6) Design & Storytelling

The awards are open to artists or designers in years 7-9 and 10-12.

Submissions  will be assessed by a panel of professional judges who will evaluate work for creativity, quality of skill, and responsiveness to the selected entry category. Prizes will be awarded to the top submissions in each category, and a curated selection of work from all entries will be invited to participate in an award exhibition at the Cullity Gallery at the UWA School of Design.

Win from a pool of over $2,000 in prize money and winners' packs.
